Hi I'm Derek

Im a missionary for the Philippines Cebu Mission, a firefighter/EMT and Im a Mormon.

About Me

Hey Im Derek! I am about to leave for the Philippines Cebu Mission! I am working on becoming a Firefighter! Becuase of this, i actually have ran into burning buildings! After my mission, i am planning on going to college to get a degree in business management and a minor in fire science! I am an Eagle Scout and a vivid outdoors lover! i love to try new things and a very friendly, outgoing person! I decided to go on a mission for a number of things. I am the first Member of my family to serve, and so i take this chance as a holy opportunity given to me from God. I grew up in t eh church. I have always known the "truth". I want to share this truth with everyone i see, especially to the people of the Philippines! I also know without a shred of doubt that our heavenly Father has asked me to serve and i will serve to the best of my ability! to share his message with the children in Cebu!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints, because i have been blessed and lucky to be able to be raised in the Gospel. I know without a shred of Doubt, that the LDS church is the true and ONLY church God has placed upon the Earth. I am a Member of the Church because I had questions growing up. The LDS Faith answered those questions and reassured me of the worries i had. If you are wanting purpose in life or if you want to know why you are where you are, please seek out the missionaries in your area! I know that Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon and i know that the Book of Mormon is the truest of all books upon the Earth at this time. I know that God is as close as prayer and if we have or need a question answered, we can call upon God and ask him with a sincere heart, he will ALWAYS answer our prayers. I bear this to you and anyone else reading this at this time in the Sacred Name of our brother and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday! I live be being a good example to my brother and all my friends! I am also currently serving a mission in the Philippines... More specifically the Philippines Cebu Mission, teaching the Gospel in the Cebuano (visayan) language! I get the opportunity to leave all worldly things for two years and i cant believe how awesome it's been! I am so grateful that i get to serve a mission!
